Today I am going to review Synovate Global Opinion Panels. This site is one of the better survey sites out there. They’re a huge marketing research firm, which has locations in over 51 countries, and have been around since 2003.
After you sign up you can fill out the profile section and take some surveys so that Synovate can get some additional information about you to match you up with their surveys. When they have surveys available they will email you them, but you can also get to this via the My Surveys section. After you complete the survey you will be given points which can be turned into cash(5000 points=$5). You also are entered into their monthly sweepstakes after each survey. You can cash out your points once you’ve reached 5000 points, and they will mail you a check.
Synovates compensation may not be as good as pinecone, but they are a very reliable company to deal with, so I definitely recommend them. Some other users of this site are Synovate members and they have recieved some products to test as well, such as Shampoo and Conditioner, bleach, stuffing mix, and body wash. Overall I would rate them around an 8/10. If they paid a bit more for their surveys I would give them a higher score. But you should be able to earn some cash, and also get some free products to try. Sign up and check them out.
There are many sites online that you can make money from by doing offers and surveys, but CashCrate is one of the few reliable sites that I have a lot of faith in. On CashCrate you can take up to 3 surveys a day, which pay $.80, and you can do as many offers as you want. These offers have a wide range of payouts, from 20 cents to 20 dollars. Some offers are as simple as filling out a form, and others require you to make a purchase or sign up for some type of free trial. CashCrate makes it easy by letting you sort through offers that require or don’t require a credit card. You can also do offers for points instead of cash, and you can redeem the points for gift cards and other types of merchandise. I’d suggest doing the cash payout offers though, and just buy what you would like with that cash when they send you your payment.
Another easy way to make money from CashCrate is by getting referrals to sign up under you. Depending on how many referrals you have you can earn as much as 25% of the amount that your referrals earn, and as much as 15% of what their referrals earn. CashCrate will also send you $3 every time one of your referrals reaches their first $10 of earnings.
CashCrate pays out around the 20th of every month, so if you earn $10 by January 31, you will receive a check for 10 dollars by February 25th or so(at the latest). They are very reliable at paying out, unlike many of the other offer companies out there. CashCrate is a great site to do in some spare time, since it doesn’t take long to do one or two offers or surveys. By the end of the month you will have some extra money to use to go out to dinner, pay your cell phone bill, etc. Click here to sign up for CashCrate.
Pinecone Research has opened up registration for everyone! This survey company is definitely the best company on the internet. They will send you surveys all the time and every time you complete one they will either paypal you, or send you a check for $3-5 dollars. They send the payments immediately, unlike most other companies.
Pinecone will send you “household question” surveys once and a while(do not earn you money), and they use this information to figure out which paying surveys will apply to you. They will ask you questions about the type of products that you use, if you have pets, kids, etc. These usually only take a few minutes to complete.
The product surveys will take a little longer, but those are the ones that will make you money. Sometimes after you complete a product survey Pinecone will tell you that they will be sending you a product to try. This is probably the most exciting part of these surveys, becuase you get to try products that aren’t even on the market yet. I have tried some things such as a frozen meal(shipped in a foam cooler with dry ice), candy bars, video games, and more. This testing will also earn you money, and you almost always get to keep the product!
I can’t think of anything bad to say about this company, and I think everyone should sign up. You aren’t required to take the surveys, but they are easy and fun to do if you have some spare time. They also don’t always have registration open, so if you sign up now you won’t have to worry about getting in at a later time when it might not be open.
edit-the registration link isnt working right now, but I will update this post when it is.
